Technology Ranch’s rover did fine in excavating regolith; however, it frequently missed the collection box due to a failure of the on board video cameras. The team from Arroye Grande, California finished with 26.45 kilograms – a good showing but far short of the 150 kilograms required to qualify for prize money.
